We were seeking to create a discrete yet fully functional assistance device.
What it does
NAVI is a simple addition to any pair of glasses that provides guidance through vibrations and voice commands -Utilizes bone conduction technology to leave ears open to surroundings -Discrete and easily hidden -Connects through smart phone to NAVI app -Provides directional guidance with directional vibrations -Provides outdoor/indoor surrounding guidance through voice commands -Announces Points of Interest as well as potential hazards
How we built it
We designed the prototype using Blender, then exported and 3D printed.
Challenges we ran into
-Technical prototype development -Comfortable design that fits seamlessly on any pair of glasses
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We developed a clean and professional looking product along with a great video to present NAVI.
What we learned
-Engineering design process experience -Team cooperation skills
What's next for NAVI (Navigational Assistant to the Visually Impaired)
Hopefully the next step would be to actually produce and implement the device
